omg!  Dress twins!  🙂  My dress JUST came in so I’m trying it on for the first time next week.

Are you sure it was taken in properly?  It shouldn’t slide if it fits you correctly…

Also, maybe you can try to iron on some of those rubber strips into the inside of the dress?  It’s the ones that are on some strapless bras… and sometimes you find it on tube tops.  I know you can purchase from fabric stores.  It’s rubbery/grippy on one side and self adhesive on the other side… hope that works for you! 🙂

Hmmm…most strapless dresses I’ve tried on have an inner corset to hold it in place.  Can you have something similar added by your tailor?  I know that I’ve seen such a thing with a low back.  Either way, this doesn’t sound right…wedding dresses especially are designed to stay up.  Have you talked to your tailor/seamstress about it?

Have you tried fashion tape? . I agree with fizicsGirl , it SHOULD fit you tight enough to stay up. but fashion tape use to work wonders for me.

Maybe if "the girls" were held in place better…

Try those adhesive bras with no straps or back or anything.  I have those and I LOVE THEM!  Keep my C+ girls right where they should be!!

MightySapphire – which brand do you use? I’ve used some before (not sure which brand) and they didn’t work well.  I’m debating whether this is a better idea than having cups sewed into my strapless dress…

i also got a paloma dress with a low back and i got one of those corset bras that are made to be worn with low back dresses. i would recommend trying one of those and if you don’t like that, then go with the fashion tape.
